Looks like a 95-97% off center dime. Pretty cool! Is it about the same size as a dime?

Agree it's an off center strike but it's a nickel, basing on designers initials on the obv and location of UNUM on rev. Anywhere from 1966- present. Not much way of telling without a date. Nice one!

How did you come across this one?

Hi Crh1993,

It's actually the size of a nickel and does the fs mean that is a nickel?

Here is the design of the nickel with the FS initials. You can also check weight and size to match what PCGS shows.

Hey Ty2020b,

Got it from an antique shop that has a small coin section.

Nice find, assuming the price was within reason.

Nice. It may not have a big premium because of not having a date.

Nice nickel error https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_fr...H_Complete=1
What did you pay for it?

Thank you for the feedback everyone. I was excited to find it, my first off center coin and I only paid a few dollars for it. Good to know I made a good buy.
